NYS Community Medicaid Look Back Postponed!
New York State has announced that the "look back" for Community Medicaid applications has been postponed until April of 2022. This means that if you have to make any transfers to meet the resource limits you still have time! This is a huge relief for many New Yorkers who have been worried about obtaining this very important service for their loved ones.
For more information about this particular change as well as the many other unfortunate changes being made to Community Medicaid please go to the "New York State Legal Assistance Group" website. http://www.wnylc.com/health/news/85/
